GHOST TOWN // THEATRE - costume, puppetry + collaboration
GHOST TOWN is an exhilarating piece about the end.
Life’s repeating patterns become untethered as the end approaches, but can we escape by breaking out of the loop? Or should we follow the road to its natural conclusion?
Taking the audience on a journey from a broken-down car in the middle of the desert to an unexpected climax, Ghost Town combines circus, dance, media art and live foley, with world renown collaborators.
Collaborative, supportive, experimental and intriguing ~ Ghost town seems to defy the traditional constructs of a theatre show and sit partway between, theatre, performance art and a meditative experience.
The team have been incredible: from exceptional dancing, juggling, sound and media design (all interacting on stage) to beautiful lighting and supportive and thoughtful direction:
Thanks to ever inspiring Emma Lister for bringing me onto the team (for this experimental; creative journey) from chats and museum visits to puppetry, costume design and styling + … you’ve opened up my eyes to a whole new way of making theatre collaboratively!
Ghost Town is divided into three sections and offers a four hour journey with an inter-disciplinary performance at its centre.
Ghost Town, co-produced by Agit-Cirk (FIN) and Makeshift Company (UK), it premiere in Cirko-New Circus Centre in March 2022.
